This is for LauraLo- Yes, I made the blouse and I wore it on my wedding day 3 years ago. The top is made from charmeuse silk and underlined with China silk. And yes it is scrumptious to wear! The skirt is the same charmeuse silk, overlaid with the most exquisite French Chantilly lace you ever saw! I got it from G Street Fabrics in Rockville and it was ruinously expensive! (As Els once described a piece of fabric:)
The skirt is underlined with a cottom batiste and lined with the same silk charmeuse.
And the real wild card was the corset I wore. I had an amazing corset custom made for me by Jill Andrews, a draper for Center Stage Theatre in Baltimore, MD. I enjoyed the sewing that went into my wedding outfit.
